ECDIS 24 to Retrofit Program

Norwegian shipowner Nor Lines has placed an order with German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz to supply electronic chart display and information systems (ECDIS) as part of its vessel retrofit programme.

Under the deal, Raytheon Anschütz will deliver ten ECDIS 24 systems, which are the updated version of the company’s ECDIS.

The ECDIS 24 systems will be equipped on five of Nor Lines’ ships; the Norwegian shipowner’s MV Cometa will be the first vessel to be installed with the system.

Raytheon Anschütz’s Norwegian distributor Syberg will be responsible for supplying and commissioning the systems on all five ships.

Raytheon Anschütz sales manager Jörn Fischbach said: "With ECDIS 24 we can offer customers both a proven, easy to operate ECDIS software and a dedicated hardware solution to meet the particular needs of a cost-efficient retrofit."

"Raytheon Anschütz will deliver ten ECDIS 24 systems, which are the updated version of the company’s ECDIS."

The company’s ECDIS 24 retrofit package includes a 24" TFT Panel- PC, an interface box that provides all necessary interfaces as required by the ECDIS performance standard IEC61174, trackball, DVD drive and cabling.

Transfer of data, routes and charts between the two ECDIS systems on a vessel will be facilitated through a LAN network cable.

According to Raytheon Anschütz, the new ECDIS 24 features an integrated automatic switch-over between AC and DC power supply, which reduces the need for another uninterrupted power supply (UPS) for the customer.

One of two ECDIS on each ship will have feature an integrated weather overlay, which will offer sea chart and weather chart in one display.
